Sure it wasn't a loose solder joint in battery cable or ESC? Much more common to lose power/control that way than for a component to actually malfunction. Or were you using a seperate rx battery?

Battery was fine, everything was working fine untill I swapped ESC. So I figure my problem lies there.

Squeezed in a few night flights last night on my Radian and Quad.

It was a warm 30 degrees C and nil wind. Awesome!

I about cut my finger off again today. Lucky it wasn't as bad as last time, but dang it my engine runs.

I haven't flown in a few days. Time to get my behind in gear and get some stuff fixed

Cut my foot on a carbon blade last night. Walked into my quad while it was sitting on my garage floor. And it wasn't even powered up and spinning!

Had batteries charged up and planes packed up to hit the church parking lot this a.m. - but the weathermen were, well, highly paid for the value of their prediction.

Rain, Wind, you'd almost think it was winter time if it wasn't 56 degrees out there! Can't wait for Christmas - I happen to know (since I bought it) that there is a Blade Nano sitting under the Christmas tree. Assuming I can control it, it will make for a good indoor flier on days like this.

i spun up a folding blade while friend was holding plane on table.Blade hit friends leg no cuts but sure scraped off some skin ! was my fault for not looking where he was,and his fault for not paying attention,as he knew we was checking power . So yes it can and will happen !
